Designed by legendary automotive designer Filippo Perini and originally unveiled by Automobili Lamborghini at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, the epic Lamborghini Huracan is one of the best naturally-aspirated V10 supercars that money can buy today. If you know a thing or two about Lamborghini, then you will no doubt know that the Lamborghini Huracan received a facelift early last year and a new name too. Now known as the Lamborghini Huracan Evo, this facelifted version of Lamborghini’s popular V10 supercar is based on the hardcore Lamborghini Huracan Performante and it now features a sleeker and sportier design language, a redesigned interior, updated vehicle technology and of course more power.
Despite the fact that the updated Lamborghini Huracan Evo is absolutely brilliant in just about every way, some Huracan Evo owners may want more style and more performance from their ride and that is where the vast world of aftermarket tuning comes into the picture. As with the first generation Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 and LP580-2 the Huracan Evo is quickly becoming a popular choice for aftermarket tuning firms and that is where the vehicle featured in this article comes into the picture. What you are looking at ladies and gentlemen is a Lamborghini Huracan Evo which has received the full aftermarket treatment courtesy of Miami based tuning firm 1016 Industries.
According to 1016 Industries, the Lamborghini Huracan Evo featured in this article is the “first full forged carbon fibre Lamborghini Huracan Evo” and that means it is quite a bit lighter than a regular Huracan Evo. In order to achieve the desired weight loss numbers, 1016 Industries have equipped this Huracan Evo with a long list of lightweight exterior pieces which come in the form of a more aggressive forged carbon fibre front splitter, a new forged carbon fibre hood which is 3.6 kilogrammes lighter than the stock component and a set of redesigned, vented front fenders which are inspired by the Huracan Super Trofeo racecar and are around 5 kilogrammes lighter than the stock fenders.
Staying with the exterior tweaks, when viewed from the rear you will notice that 1016 Industries has outfitted this Huracan Evo with a redesigned forged carbon fibre rear diffuser, a lightweight stainless steel performance exhaust system with twin-tailpipes and a large forged carbon fibre fixed rear wing which “promises to provide improved stability at higher speeds.” According to 1016 Industries, customers can also equip their Huracan Evo with an HD rear wing which features a proprietary shear web inside, which enables the component to be thin, lightweight, yet extremely strong and can therefore handle speeds of up to 402 km/h (250 mph). According to 1016 Industries, customers will be able to further refine the looks of their Huracan Evo as “regular and widebody forms with forged and twill carbon fibre options” will be available.
If you think 1016 Industries latest upgrade package for the Huracan Evo is all about looks and not about performance, you’d be dead wrong because the Miami based tuning firm has also gone to work on the Huracan Evo’s 5.2 litre, naturally-aspirated V10 engine. To be more specific, 1016 Industries have upped the overall power output of the Huracan Evo from 631 hp to 651 hp and the overall torque has also been increased by 26 N.m (19 lb-ft) to 626 N.m (462 lb-ft) of torque. Unfortunately at the time of writing this article, 1016 Industries didn’t disclose which performance upgrades were fitted in order to achieve the above mentioned performance figures and they also didn’t disclose any 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint times or overall top speed figures for their modified Lamborghini Huracan Evo.
Here in the office at Enzari , we absolutely love what 1016 Industries have done to the Lamborghini Huracan Evo, however at the time of writing this article no pricing details were made available to us so we have no idea how long we’d have to save up in order to get one. Although no pricing details were disclosed by 1016 Industries, the Miami based tuning firm has said that they will be donating 10% of their sales from now until the end of April, 2020 to the World Health Organisation (WHO) in order to assist with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
